An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Hello. I had a pelvic ultrasound and these were the results: 10.2 cm CC x 4.9 cm AP x 7.5 cm transverse uterus. Are these results abnormal?
Probably WNL results: If these sonographic measurements were obtained by a skilled certified Gyn sonographer, they are probably considered within normal limits (WNL) or in the upper limits of normal for a woman who is 61 and postmenopausal. What is missing and much more important is the measurements of the "thickness of the endometrium". ...Read more
No: The ultrasonographer, or "tech" is not allowed to tell you the results of your exam, because they are not physicians. Sometimes a physician will give an ultrasonographer permission to tell patients some information before the physician reviews the images, but usually you have to wait to get the results until the physician makes a determination about the results of the exam. ...Read more

Did a pelvic ultrasound this week the results show all the parts but no picture of the right ovary and its the part that hurts. Should I do it again?
Do you still have your appendix? The ovaries don't usually hurt as much as they get blamed for. I would think more about your uterus having a spasm with pain radiating to your right side, or appendix, colon spasm, abdominal wall spasm.
If a thorough physical examination can't delineate the source of the pain, you may need a ct scan, but I wouldn't have high hopes it would give a specific answer. ...Read more

I had a pelvic ultrasound and was told I should get results within 1 week. The radiologist is in the same office as my gyn. Why does it take a week?
Need to review: It takes a week or more to correlate with your clinical findings.

Let your doc get the report, review the images if needed, discuss with the radiologist if needed, & then formulate a plan. Believe it or not, this takes time. ...Read more

I did a pelvic ultrasound, shows a 14x12x9cm RO cyst. Done a CT, shows a 7cm RO cyst and 2 smaller LO cyst. Why the conflict result? Which is accurate
It doesn't: Seem to make much sense. How much time elapsed between the two tests? If they were done around the same time, the radiologist should look at both of the studies side by side and figure out what the correct measurement is. ...Read more

My mom peed a bit b4 pelvic ultrasound. She examined ovaries. Does peeing skew the results incredibly+how? She has cysts but do u think need go rescan
Doesn't matter: Having the bladder full of urine makes it a little easier for the ultrasound to view the uterus and ovaries. If the bladder is less full it can be a little more difficult to see the ovaries, but if your mother has cysts on the ovaries they should be able to be seen pretty clearly. The part of the exam with the probe in the vagina sees the ovaries very well, doesn't depend on bladder fullness. ...Read more

Very sore in ext. Vaginal area I avoid sex and in menopause. Waiting for results from pelvic ultrasound to see if uterus lining thin. Suggestions?
Vaginal Estrogen: When you are in menopause, your body stops making estrogen. Since the vaginal tissue is very sensitive to estrogen, it can become thin and lose its ability to stretch. When you have intercourse, you can actually get micro-tears in the vaginal wall that are painful. These symptoms usually respond to a vaginal estrogen cream or tablet. Don't have intercourse if its painful. Best wishes! ...Read more

The transducer also captures the waves that bounce back. The ultrasound machine creates images from the sound waves. ...Read more
